Our building has a front and back entrance. The front entrance you can enter either with your key fob or by using the key pad and having the person you are coming to see buzz you in. The back entrance you can only use your key fob for entry.
When you are walking up to either entrance the whole area is very visible. Now when I am alone and coming to either side if I see people waiting to get in I walk around to the other side so I do not have to let them in.
I do this for a few reasons:
I am sure they are perfectly fine ordinary people but what if they are not, I do not want them robbing or causing harm to me or others in our building.
What if someone in the building does not want to see them. I always think if I was avoiding someone so did not buzz them in and then someone came along and just let them in I would be pissed.
I hate talking to strangers, if you walk up to the door and in and someone is standing there you are bound to have to say something to them.
Mr. H thinks it makes sense but that I am a bit extreme in my avoidance of letting people in and will not often go all the around the buildings to avoid it himself.
So what would you do, I am curious if I am just a typical paranoid Californian or that you think this is totally normal too.
O and I so far have found no solution for leaving the building and not letting a person go in behind me without seeming like a real crazy lady!
